So what’s it going to be tonight, the NBA All-Star game in Orlando or the 84th Annual Academy Awards? The choice is rather simple, you either watch professional basketball players begrudgingly defer to one another in a fake display of camaraderie, or watch Hollywood do the same exact thing.
Or you can say screw it all and watch The Walking Dead and Luck.
If you do end up opting for the NBA — likely to simply marvel at Steve Nash’s haircut and unmistakable focus — it’s going to take a lofty effort from the boys to top the last time the All-Star game came to Orlando. That’s where Magic Johnson made his emotional return following his stunning retirement. After hitting a three-pointer in Isiah’s face with just over 14 seconds left, players and coaches alike wisely decided to end things right there. It was perfection. One of those special moments in sports that you never tire of watching no matter how many times you’ve seen it. Chills are inevitable each and every time.
